This morning I was reading Kelly Zarb’s wonderful little illustrated zine about terrariums when I noticed that the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is doing a terrarium exhibit. And of course, entrance is free on winter weekdays!
I’m excited to start collecting tiny pebbles and glass jars, and build my own miniature forests.
I picked up some pretty origami paper from the Kinokuniya Bookstore yesterday. I’m folding little birds to send out with a couple snail mail packages this week.

The never-ending selection of craft books at Kinokuniya!
Spicy chicken + kimchi ramen with a soft poached egg at Momofuku Noodle Bar
The talented Jannese of Craftylove brought me her lovely Tokyo guide zine as a housewarming gift! The photographs in it wonderfully capture small details from her walks. Have you seen her new photo book?
Taurin and I spent Valentines Day cooking, drinking wine, and exchanging many food-centric gifts. We made a big pot of perciatelli, a thick spaghetti-like pasta. Taurin got me the Momofuku Milk Bar recipe book! I’m so excited, I even ordered an ice cream machine.
On Thursday evening, we went to 285 Kent Ave to see Lucky Dragon’s album release show. It was one of the most captivating performances I’ve seen in awhile.
